The Paul House

Dundee, Oregon

The Paul-Wadsworth House is located within the vineyards of a winery overlooking the Willamette Valley. The house balances comfortable private spaces and living areas sized for entertaining.

The house is approached by a long drive through the vineyards. Entrance is made by way of a trellised walk that traverses a small courtyard. The house obscures the view until one enters the main living spaces. There, floor to ceiling windows frame the view.

The house’s form is derived from utilitarian buildings that dot the agrarian landscape. A shallow pitched gable roof with deep eaves shelters the structure from the elements and provides year round outdoor spaces.
